Jeremy Hope and his coauthor, Steve Player, assess some common and allegedly hard-headed tools that firms often use in an attempt to improve performance, everything from mission statements through Six Sigma through high-powered exec compensation.
This is a supremely useful book, helping managers and execs navigate the increasingly crowded offerings of how to manage a company and set strategic directions. Should you adopt Six Sigma? What value do performance evaluations really offer? What is lean accounting? Hope and Player offer real analysis and useful solutions.
